[Verse 1]
G DWell he likes black coffee, fried eggs and a well done T-bone steak
D C GHe likes a red dress and pearly white teeth and the flash of her pretty brown legs
C GHe said back in the '30s, you know you never had it made
A7 DHe worked as an engineer on the Ohio river, working for the Pittsburgh trade
[Verse 2]
G DAt the inspection office in Louisville he had a desk for a very short time
D C GAnd he played in a band on two different boats working for the Strackfus line
C GAnd long ago he smoked reefer and he even made home brew
A7 DAnd the reefer come in through New Orleans back before World War II
[Chorus]
G DHe's just a feller worked on the river, All his life by a paddle wheel
D C GYou say he's old fashioned, Well that ain't no big deal
C GWell it's too thick to navigate, And it's too thin to plow
G D G D GSo let him go on mama and don't put him down for it now

[Verse 3]
G DWell he smokes an old I-bolt cigar, Says he doesn't miss it at all
D C GBut he still goes out and he makes a few trips in the summer and in the fall
C GOh, the railroad trains, the bus and planes are picking up the slack
A7 DHe's watching all those river towns slowly turn their backs
[Chorus]
G DHe's just a feller worked on the river, All his life by a paddle wheel
D C GYou say he's old fashioned, Well that ain't no big deal
C GWell it's too thick to navigate, And it's too thin to plow
G D G D GSo let him go on mama and don't put him down for it now

[Verse 4]
G DWell he comes from a real old-time way of life, He had to fight to just learn how
D C GAnd he might even have voted for Nixon once but I'm sure he sees that now
C GWell Friday night he makes the best damn Gumbo you'd ever want to eat
A7 DAnd Saturday morning 'fore everyone's up, he's gone off down to the fleet
[Chorus]
G DHe's just a feller worked on the river, All his life by a paddle wheel
D C GYou say he's old fashioned, Well that ain't no big deal
C GWell it's too thick to navigate, And it's too thin to plow
G D G D GSo let him go on mama and don't put him down for it now

[Verse 5]
G DYou're as pretty as he is ugly and he's the happiest man alive
D C GSomehow you got him thinking that old men are back in style
C GNow you see these Oysters Bienville and this baked potato skin
A7 DI eat 'em so I can grow up an' be, an old man just like him
[Chorus]
G DHe's just a feller worked on the river, All his life by a paddle wheel
D C GYou say he's old fashioned, Well that ain't no big deal
C GWell it's too thick to navigate, And it's too thin to plow
G D G D GSo let him go on mama and don't put him down for it now
